I had a contractor install ceramic wood-like tiles. I bought this grout for 1/16th lines. Unfortunately this grout came out lighter, almost white in majority of the places. Very few places have the true color. Why did this happen and how can I fix it?

Answer: 
Color variations can occur in any Portland-Cement product including grout. Efflorescence (whitish powder) can also occur. Typically, a sulfamic-acid cleaning will alleviate this discoloration. For further assistance please contact our installation division at 800.272.8786 option 2

Noticed this right away but let it dry completely and it is still gray and it has been a month. I am going to request that he remove the grout and reapply but worried it will turn out the same.

April 1, 2016
I am grouting a 5 foot x 5 foot area of 4 in x 4 in tiles on bathroom wall. Only the 10 pound size was available so I got it, but it's way too much product to mix up for this little bit of grout work. Figured I'd use what I need now, and save remainder for future.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 330 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't purchase Harder to work with vs a Mapei product. Blotchy and with porcelain tile can be too time consuming. Returning unused portion for a refund March 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what we wanted for our backsplash tiles We had to order this color New Taupe un-sanded online as it was not available in the store. We used it on a narrow glass mosaic tile and wanted to tone down the green glass within the pattern it does not appear dark at all, more a medium shade. We also used a spray on grout sealer after about 3 days. It looks great. We had a contractor install our backsplash. March 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product My wife and I love this. It worked out great. We are extremely pleased. March 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great grout color - very modern The dark grout is very en-trend right now. I used this grout with subway tile i also purchased from Home Depot. I could not be happier with the way it looks. Plus, the non-sanded prevented any scratching on the ceramic tiles. September 3, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do Not Consider this grout for dark colored tile. This color grout was chosen based upon the tile sample in the store - when my 650 sq ft of tile was grouted using the polyblend non sanded tobacco brown, it dried white. Now how very disappointing to have that happen when you've been living on concrete for 3 months after the flood and you are anxious to get your house back together and now I'm going to spend time acid washing the grout after allowing the minerals to come to the surface - which takes 10 days - THEN stain the grout to its true color. REALLY? This product needs to be pulled from the shelf. When you invest in the materials and the labor involved - this should be a one time effort. The other option of achieving a true color is to remove the grout and use a high performance grout, fusion grout, or apoxy grout...which is a lot more expensive, but had I studied the reviews on this grout prior to the purchase, I would have at least considered the other more expensive choice. This choice of grout might be ok if you are shooting for a lighter color grout - as in alabaster - because it is the nature of the grout to leach minerals to the surface and look lighter in color. It is definitely not a choice for darker grout when you don't want the seams to show. I was trying to achieve a natural look - not a brick look. Sooo disappointed! June 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Non-sanded grout - light smoke This process of grouting was much better this time as the right product was used. I love the color and it tremendously help me keeping my kitchen's appearance looking cleaner and chic. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Goes beautifully with the tile My installer recommended this grout to use for 1/16 grooves. Looks great, easy to keep clean. July 14, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by non sanded grout I would have liked to have more specific mixing instructions on the package. I kept mixing the grout too thin. Having ratios listed would have been helpful to a novice like me. May 24, 2016
